2014/22 St Patrick’s Day headband – very quick free pattern!

I came up with this while making a St Patrick’s Day hat, hence the hook and yarn in the photo 😛 This quick headband could take you an hour or two at most.IMG_20140315_130847

Front post triple crochet tutorial video HERE from Crochet Geek. Please note that it’s in US terms – double crochet – but in UK terms this is a TR.

Bobble stitch tutorial video HERE at 2 mins 43 by epicabundance. Again, this is in US terms so she refers to UK TR as double crochet.

Start with green yarn and a chain of 66 or as many as you need to go around the head. Make sure that your chain isn’t twisted and join with a slip stitch into the first chain.

Round 1: Chain 1. Double crochet (US sc) into the next stitch and all the way around.

Round 2: Chain 1. Front post triple crochet into the next stitch and all the way around.

Round 3: Chain 1. Triple crochet (not fp) into the next 4 stitches. Change colour to gold yarn and bobble stitch into stitch 5. *Triple crochet into the next 4 stitches and then bobble stitch in gold*. Repeat from * to * all the way around.

Round 4: TR all the way around.

Round 5 – 7: Repeat round 2.

Round 8: Repeat round 3.

Round 9: Repeat round 4.

Round 10: Repeat round 2.

Round 11: Dc all the way around. Fasten off. Sew in ends.

And voila!

Headband – pattern translation

Although she doesn’t know it, Donna from Naztazia.com taught me to crochet via her videos (on her site and youtube). She is a very, very talented lady who crochets outside the box.

She has today posted on Facebook links to a new pattern for a headband (and has gone blonde! Love!).

half double = UK half treble

dc – UK treble

Here’s the written pattern.
